The camcorders are small enough to fit in a jacket pocket and record video directly to 3-inch (8cm) diameter DVD-R/RW discs, and include the ability to locate scenes without having to rewind or fast forward, to create playlists of favorite scenes, and to do some quick editing. Once finalized (closed to further recording), the recorded discs are compatible with most DVD players, both old and new, according to Sonic.
With the included MyDVD software, users will be able to take advantage of two ways to transfer recorded footage from a PC-connected DC20 or DC10 to a settop or desktop-playable DVD. Using the exclusive One-Touch Dubbing feature, MyDVD will make a straight dub of the recorded footage with a single press of the camcorder's Print and Share button. Alternatively, the recorded footage may be imported into MyDVD for quick-and-easy creation of Hollywood-style menu-driven DVDs using features such as integrated video editing, motion-video menus, animated buttons, and slideshows with transitions and soundtracks.
MyDVD is also OpenDVD-compliant, enabling previously burned DVDs to be opened, re-edited, updated with new content, and re-burned to DVD and CD recordable/re-writable media. The Canon DC20 and DC10 DVD camcorders with bundled Roxio MyDVD for Canon software are currently available worldwide.
